My favorite casual business lunch spot in downtown Seattle 5/27/2008

Koji has been my favorite spot for casual business lunches for years. The sushi is great, the other Japanese food is very good, the service is very fast (easily in and out in 45 minutes) and the prices are very reasonable (generally can get out for under $25 for two). Dinner is also great, although the higher prices (and commensurate very large portions) usually cause me to stick with sushi for dinner. A favorite of kids as well, Koji's Harbor Steps location makes this a natural when we are all over in Seattle from Bainbridge Island. Highly recommended! more

Bad Sushi, Good Curry and Teriyaki 7/11/2006

The good thing about this place is that it's open late (10pm on weeknights) and service and seating are quick. The atmosphere is more on the traditional side, but a little dull, reflective of the downtown, somewhat touristy location. The sushi bar is nice though. I like this place for it's Japanese curry - I prefer the chicken the the sliced ribeye one. I also tasted the salmon teriyaki don which was good. The sushi is unspectacular at best and poisonous at worst. My friend got sick, most likely from one of the unagi rolls (maybe it had some questionable raw fish also?). The california roll was the highlight, being one of the better ones I've had (they use real crab and portions are good). Spicy tuna was abysmal. The menu is pretty extensive though, and I'd recommend you stick to the everyday Japanese cooking and not the sushi. They have udon, yakitori, chicken kara-age, ramen etc. that Im looking forward to trying. more

Japanese home cooking when you're lazy 4/19/2006

I agree with Robert S that they shouldn't try to pass themselves off as a hip restaurant, because it really isn't. Although it's in a good downtown location (at Harbor Steps at 1st and Seneca), it reminds me more of a mom-and-pops shop in Little Tokyo. They have a wide variety of meals - lot of it standard fare. We were in a temporary housing next door (Harbor Steps Apts) for a while so we ate there a few times, and the only complaint is that my fiance got sick after he ate their tonkotsu ramen (he commented it tasted funny too before he got sick). It could be the cured pork, chashu (different spelling in Chinese, which I don't know - sorry), was old. Also tonkotsu takes the soup stock from pig bones, so that may not have been cleaned well. It's nice to have a comfort food restaurant, though, which has things like katsu-don (fried cutlet cooked in eggs and dashi on a bed of rice) and oyako-don (chicken and eggs cooked in dashi over a bed of rice; since chicken and eggs are parent and child it's called oyako - parent/child - the variation is tanin-don, which translates to stranger-bowl, if you use beef and egg - ha ha). Having cheap-ish udon and soba is also nice. In summary, I wouldn't go there for a particular reason or a date, and probably wouldn't eat sushi there, but if you're a nearby and miss some home cooking style Japanese, this place would probably come out cheaper than a lot of places around there. And yes, the chef and at least one of the servers are Japanese. But it's common for Japanese restaurants to have more unskilled labor in the kitchen, so I wouldn't count on delicate Japanese cuisine - but at least it's being supervised by Japanese so it wouldn't be terribly unauthentic. more

good japanese 8/18/2005

This place is great for Katsudon, Donburi and Tonkatsu. Actually its hard to find these Japanese dishes elswhere in seattle. Shusi here is not the strong point. But the view is great. The pricing is too high in my opinion, they are trying to pass off as a hip high end restaurant - when in fact this type of food in japan is just everyday and nothing special. Their cost to produce thier menu is a fraction of the prices charged. Anyway, good taste though and they even have a couple native Japanese servers and last time I was their the Chef was actually Japanese and not Korean as you find all to common. more
